You can manage your payout settings by going to your profile’s Settings > Payout Methods.
You can choose between these 2 processing times in receiving your payouts:
Your payouts will be processed daily.
Your payouts will be processed on the 28th of every month.
If the 28th falls on a weekend, the payout will be processed on the next business day. If February 28th is a Sunday, the payout will be processed on March 1.
Charity payments aren’t able to be processed monthly.
You can also choose between 3 payout methods.
Depending on which of the 3 payout methods you elect, payments are processed at different times each day, and the expected retrieval time of your monetary award also varies depending on the method.
Note: Payments are not processed on the first or last days of the month.
HackerOne offers these 3 payout methods for monetary awards:
Monday to Friday at 11:30pm UTC
Payout time is 1-2 days.
As soon as the payment is initiated, you’ll receive your award instantly, given that your PayPal account is set up to properly receive the amount of money HackerOne is trying to send.
Bitcoin via Coinbase
Every day at 11pm UTC
Payout time is 1-2 days.
As soon as the payment is processed, you’ll receive your award instantly.
Bank Transfer (Currencycloud)
Monday to Friday at 9am UTC
Payout time is 1-10 days.
You can choose between using Normal (local) or Priority (SWIFT) payments. How fast you receive your payout depends on the type of payment you’re using as well as your bank. There are cases where hackers have received payments on the same day and cases where hackers have had to wait the full 10 business days. Bank transfers can be done in your own local currency. To convert bounties to your local currency, the mid-market rate is used to convert money. This saves you up to 5% compared to relying on your bank to convert the money to your local currency.
Make sure your bank isn’t on the sanctions list. Go to https://sanctionssearch.ofac.treas.gov/ to check if your bank is on the list. Banks on this list don’t qualify for bank transfers. Examples include VTB and SBERBANK.
Note: $10k is the maximum amount that can be processed in 1 payment. So if you’re receiving a $30k bounty, you’ll receive it in 3 transactions with $10k in each transaction.
More Info on Bank Transfers (Currencycloud)
For bank transfers, we currently support conversions to the following currencies:
New Zealand Dollar
Romanian New Leu
Hong Kong Dollar
South African Rand
Israeli New Sheqel
United Arab Emirates Dirham
United States Dollar
Keep in mind that:
- When receiving a payout through a bank transfer, the payout must meet the minimum amount for the type of payment before it can be sent:
- Swift payment minimum: $100
- Local payment minimum: $50
- The minimum is the cumulative of all payments pending for that user. For example, if you have $1 from one award and $49 pending from another, the 2 payments will be grouped into one payout of $50, which enables it to meet the local payment minimum transaction amount.
